Residents of Taman Saga located at Jalan Sungai Jati, Klang, believe that their existence may have been ‘overlooked’ or ‘forgotten’ by the Klang Municipal Council (MPK).
Residents Association president A. Rama Kumar claimed that their garbage had not been collected since they moved in two years ago.
“We have resorted to dumping our household waste in the MPK garbage bins placed at a block of apartments near our housing estate,’’ he said.
Rama Kumar, who came to the MPK office with several other residents to seek help, also alleged that the drains around the area were chocking with undergrowth.
“No maintenance work or cleaning up has ever been done since we moved in. We are beginning to believe that the MPK does not know that we exist,’’ he added.
Rama Kumar said he had called the MPK on several occasions to report their predicament but no action had been taken.
“We were told on one occasion that garbage collection and maintenance service would only commence after we had made our first quit rent payment,’’ he said.
According to Rama Kumar, an MPK official who attended to them had claimed that the council was not aware of their problem.
Meanwhile, MPK health inspector R.P Mohan, who met Rama Kumar and his entourage, said that immediate action would be taken to settle the problems faced by residents of Taman Saga.
